said buzzard point will be home to a new world class stadium. >> people say d.c. isn't a soccer city. they are 100% wrong. >> reporter: but can d.c. be a soccer city if it doesn't even have a stadium? d.c. united spent its entire existence playing at rfk stadium, the redskins old home. >> it's not a soccer stadium. it doesn't feel soccerrish. >> reporter: the team homes a soccer specific stadium -- hopes a soccer specific stadium will have that soccerrish feeling at buzzard point. >> by giving them a soccer specific stadium, new, updated, beautiful. it's for them. >> reporter: for the fans said d.c. united goalie, the fans who have supported united in their four mls titles since the team's inception in 1996 and despite their success it has been impossible to see the rfk which seats more than 40,000
